Margaret Roberts Sophie dances 2020 (yarn on wall) is shown in FROLIC FREEZE. It remakes one of several plans that Sophie Taeuber drew for the L’Aubette commission in Strasbourg in the late 1920s and which were never realised at the time. Sophie dances brings it one step closer to realisation by drawing it in yarn at life-size scale—on a wall that is approximately the same size as the L'Aubette wall that the plan was made for—while still leaving the plan unfinished. It is called Sophie dances because so many of her works seem to be derived from her early dance work, and once made, this wall-drawing seemed to use the wall like I thought a dancer might use the floor.
